Domaine Serge Laloue Sancerre Rose 2021

A deliciously silky and balanced rosé offering wild
strawberry and kiwi layered with notes of watermelon and
grapefruit, fresh with lovely purity of fruit.
Producer Note
The domain is located five kilometres south of Sancerre in Thauvenay and was
established by Serge Laloue in the 1960s. Christine and her brother Franck have
continued their father’s work since the 1990s and Clément, Franck's son, recently joined
the domain following his viticulture studies. The estate revolves around an
environmentally responsible approach with meticulous work in the vineyards to respect
the natural balance of the vines and obtain the highest quality grapes. In 2019, the
domain started the conversion to organic farming, a natural progression as their
farming methods were already very close to organic. The first certified organic vintage
will be 2023. The domain is HVE certified, a complementary certification recognising
environmental biodiversity and natural resource management.
Vineyard
The grapes come from 1.4 hectares of vineyard within the estate, from vines with an
average age of 25 to 30 years, which produce low yields of concentrated fruit. The
vines face a south-easterly orientation, maximising exposure to the sun to assist ripening
of the berries. The soils are 70% sandy clay and 30% siliceous clay, which produce
elegant and fresh wines with distinctive mineral notes. The vineyard is currently in
conversion to organic status, a natural progression for the Laloue family as the farming
methods used over many years have followed these principles. Vineyard management
techniques include ploughing the soil instead of using herbicides, growing cover crops
between the rows of vines and sexual confusion of predators, to maintain the health of
the vines and the biodiversity of the environment.
Winemaking
This rosé was made using the direct pressing technique, where the grape juice was in
contact with the skins for a short amount of time, before being pressed to remove the
skins, resulting in a delicate hint of rosé colour. The must was fermented with selected
yeasts in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks to retain the purity of fruit. Once
fermentation was complete, the wine was matured for four months on the lees
imparting delicate texture and subtle complexity.
